My son absolutely loves this book! A friend of ours had one and once my son saw it, he had to have it too. First we checked it out of the library, but after renewing it four or five times, we decided to add it to his Amazon birthday list. We live in Missouri, so the fact that all of the bugs are typically seen in our area was a big plus, but I think this book would be great for any child living anywhere. The larger than life pictures are absolutely wonderful and the simple text is easy enough for my 5 year old, but interesting enough for adults as well. I like the size, which is small but not too small, so we can take it along with us on trips to the woods or lake. Definitely one of my son's favorite and repeatedly read books. If you are buying this as a gift, I would recommend getting a bug catcher to go along with it.

As I write this there are approximately 900,000 species of insects/bugs/spiders/etc. that have been identified in our world. Many specialists and folks in the know estimate that this is only scratching the surface and that there quite well could be 10 million species when all is said and done. I note these figures so that this little book can be placed in perspective. Here in a few pages 50 different species of the above named critters are named and identified. Now if you live in Missouri, or have spent any times in any part of the state, you will no beyond a doubt that we have many more `bugs' in our state than that. I sometimes feel (literally) when I am working a river bottom on a hot summer evening that all 10 million species have decided to visit me all at once. Fifty is not many, but for the purposes of this book, is plenty.

Be that as it may, this is another wonderful work produced and published my Missouri Conservation Department. As I have said before, I certainly have had many issues with this department in the past, and indeed, more so at present than ever before, but I cannot fault their many fine publications. They do a class act in this area from start to finish.

This little book is an absolute gem. It is geared more for the younger set but I can assure you that any person, at any age who has the slightest interest in natural history will find this work to be an absolute delight.

Steve Buchanan, the illustrator of this and other works, is simply one of the best in the business. His paintings of these fifty animals are some of the most realistic I have ever seen and are a joy to the eyes.
